We visited the museum on Louis Riel weekend. The St Boniface museum is a restored building from the early days of Winnipeg. The Metis were an important population at the time the Gray Nuns convent was built. The museum holds many artifacts belonging to Louis Riel and he is buried in a cemetery a short distance away. His story and that of the Metis people is told in detail in both French and English storyboards at each exhibit. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Much like Lower Fort Garry, but on a much smaller scale this museum is from Manitoba's early history. Similar to the Great House in Lower Fort Garry. Set only two short blocks off of Main Street in Scotia Heights, nestled on a large property, shaded by many very large and ancient trees, surrounded by many lovely character homes. This is worth seeing and if I remember correctly, donations are accepted in lieu of an entrance fee.

I was attracted to the Manitoba Legislative building, thanks to the statue on top of this building. The statue represents a runner who won. He is holding the torch. It seems to be made of gold. The monumental pillars also made it quite attractive as well. We had pre-booked our visit to the Manitoba Legislative Building. The first thing I saw was a luxurious white stairs and right in front of it two humongous bisons. I liked the ceilings!
